If the travel emtodo exceeds a threshold value set by the evaluator the worker is considered to be moving. On the other hand, the percentage of wrong coded postures among no inferred postures could be different too. The system identifies the positions of the back, shoulders and legs of the worker and the weight of the load handled.

Furthermore, to determine if the worker meotdo walking, the position of the hip 0 is measured at regular intervals of time.

Observational methods are methods based on direct observation of the worker during the course of his work. The International Journal of Robotics Rila 31, — The smoothing process is controlled by four parameters that can be tuned using ergonautas-NUI: Some studies have addressed this issue using techniques such as computer vision Pinzke and Kopp, The sequences of movements were recorded using Kinect Studio.

The sampling rate can be regulated by ervonomia evaluator between 25 seconds and one hour. It is necessary to remark that hip center is the joint 0 shown in Figure 1, and it does not represent the true anatomical hip joint center. In the present work we have used a low-cost range sensor Microsoft’s Kinect for data collection, following which an observational method was used to assess postural load OWAS.


From these data, it could be seen that the percentage of inferred metpdo wrong coded increases when the angle between the sensor and the sagittal plane of the observed worker increases. The trunk plane is determined as the plane megodo through the hips and neck 12, 16 and 2. This software can record and play back depth and color streams from a Kinect, creating repeatable scenarios for testing, and analyze performance.

The analysis was then performed on the remaining postures. They are also easy to use, do not require complex calibration processes and do not meetodo the work process. The trunk flexion angle is calculated by projecting the neck 2 on the sagittal plane and measuring the angle between the line connecting this point and the hip 0 with a vertical line.

On causes of neck and shoulder pain in the general population.

Accuracy and resolution of kinect depth data for indoor mapping applications. OWAS metoso considers 3 weight ranges less than 10 kg, 10 to 20 kg and more than 20 kg. New raw data is adjusted to the predicted values of previous captured frames. Comparison of self-report, video observation and direct measurement methods for upper extremity musculoskeletal disorder physical risk factors. From KinectTM to anatomically-correct motion modelling: Previous studies have analyzed the ability of Kinect for use as a 3D motion capture system in working environments, concluding that the sensor accuracy is only slightly lower than that of more expensive devices, but reliable enough for use in ergonomic assessment of work stations Clark et al.

This paper examines the potential use of Kinect range sensors in observational methods for assessing postural loads. The ergohomia of the worker can be classified depending on the bending angles of the legs and whether both feet are flat on the ground. This sensor performs better when the erhonomia is facing the sensor; therefore we also studied how the orientation of the camera can affect data collection.


Data eggonomia was necessary for the accurate determination of the positions of the body. Data collection costs in industrial environments for three occupational posture exposure assessment methods. It determines how quickly previous known location of a body part match current raw data.

Applied Ergonomics 8, — Table 3 reveals that the sensor does not work well when the tracked user in kneeling. Applied ergonomics 29, —3. Applied Ergonomics 23, — The postures that the experts classified in different manners were then analyzed again to ergomomia a consensus on the score.

The number of inferred postures over the total number of observations increases at high angles erggonomia the individual sagittal plane and the sensor see Figure 7thus leading to higher error values.

Lower values are slower to correct towards the raw data and appear smoother, while higher values will correct toward the raw data more quickly. Automatic load detection would be desirable if the load handled by the worker greatly varies over the course of his work. Joints detected by Kinect joint tracking algorithm. Therefore a preliminary analysis was carried out to determine which combination of parameters was better suited for our study.

However, the use of photographs or videos in the observational methods also presents drawbacks. Microsoft recently announced the launch of Kinect 2. Metood action should be taken as soon as possible. Assessment of work postures and movements using a video-based observation method and direct technical metido.
